Signs of Life: Need direction?
Jun 7, 2006 - 10:42 AMI was recently cruising down a dark desert highway, lost as usual, when a billboard loomed out of the night. I think it featured a yellow fake-warning traffic sign that looked something like this, but the darkness was palpable, my disregard for the speed limit was reckless, and I'm working from (admittedly faulty) memory here.
As the billboard flashed by, it seemed to be promoting a quasi-religious, we'll-help-you-if-you-sign-over-the-deed-to-your-house type of organization.
I thought nothing more of it, until one of our gentle readers eMailed the URL of a website which offered to fix me up with a Life Coach:
"Are you stuck in a life rut?
Are you neglecting yourself, your family, your work?
Are you feeling the stress of too many conflicting forces?"
Of course I am. Who isn't? But it's nice to know that many people are willing to fork over good money to someone who will order them around...
In fact, if you're reading this and you feel like you need direction, please send your moolah to me, instead of getting hooked up with a cult. My rates are cheap, and I'm quite capable of telling people where to go. Ask anybody. ;-)
